Professional mold remediation in New Orleans starts by calling the experts from United Fire & Water. If your home has suffered water damage from flooding or from adverse weather conditions, it may be a breeding ground for mold. Only a professional mold remediation service can remove mold from your home to ensure that it doesn’t come back.
Using bleach to clean up mold from hard surfaces may seem like a good idea on the surface, however the EPA recommends that cleaning with bleach be avoided, since dead mold can prove to be just as effective in causing illness as live mold. A second problem exists as well: mold spores can grow and thrive on porous and semi-porous materials that include drywall, wood framing, underneath carpeting and other materials. For this reason, a certified mold remediation contractor should be called to remove the molded materials and replace them- it’s really the only way to guarantee the complete removal of mold and elimination of the conditions that led to the initial growth.
If mold growth is due to conditions that create ideal circumstances for the growth of mold, these conditions must be eliminated as well. If your home is prone to flooding, or if heavy rains get into areas of your home, it’s essential that these conditions are dealt with before the process of mold remediation gets underway, since it will only waste your time and money to remove mold and have it come back again.
